Sadly building mutt directly from the source package fails:
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/mutt-220.127.116.11-2/doc'
##test -f manual.html || make manual.html || cp ./manual*.html ./
cp ./manual*.html ./

I see this was reported before, back in 2007 -
http://email@example.com/msg82521.html - but there
was never a solution posted. Anyone have any idea what is causing it?
I'm assuming I should just be able to cd to /usr/src/mutt-126.96.36.199-2 and
'./configure' followed by 'make install'.
There also seem to be development "remains" in the source package - for
example files like lib.c~ (which looks like an emacs backup file, to
me), handler.c.orig000, mbox.c.cygwin, etc. - although I don't know
which of those are from the original source and which from the Cygwin
